​Regular visitors will need no introduction to this fascinating and attractive Cheshire village.. full of history but also packed with amenities.

For those of you who may be arriving by boat let us tell you that the canal runs right through the centre of the village .. there is still a road called The Square .. which disappeared when the Duke’s canal was driven through.

The village has everything the visitor could ask for;  a small supermarket ( Sainsbury’s), a butchers , a bakers, ( no candlestick makers but plenty of scented candles) chemist shops, banks,  half a dozen pubs and bars – including a JW Lees and Hydes, and a dozen restaurants and cafes plus a handful of take-outs  oh and a few Estate Agents and Beauty Salons.. and some  great charity shops says my wife..

 There are two hotels.. The Statham Lodge and The Lymm.

There are plenty of opportunities to explore on foot.  Lymm Dam – originally built by Lord Leverhulme is a very popular walking route  and there is a heritage trail that will give you an introduction to the history of the village including The Slitting Mill, Fustian Cutting and Gold Beating as well as the canal itself.  For cyclists the Trans-Pennine trail is close by and offers great round trips on the flat that link in with the towpath.
